Nha Trang is known for its beautiful beaches, islands, resorts and water sports, but if you want to get a feel for local life you can take a short boat ride to visit a family on a floating fish farm.
See for yourself how the families raise fish at the floating houses, and buy fresh fish at a good price.
The fish are bred in cages suspended under the floating houses on the sea. The farmers sort their stock by size into different cages and feed them anchovies and feed from the city’s markets.
The farmers, mostly men, are a relaxed bunch, listening to music, drinking beer and presenting visitors with fish so fresh they’ll slither out of your hands. They are always open to questions.
